Family &
Medical Leave

Family and Medical Leave Attorney In California

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) allows leave for a period of up to 12 weeks for employees who have worked for their employer for at least 12 months and have worked for at least 1,250 hours over the previous 12 months at a location where at least 50 employees are employed by the employer within 75 miles. Leave is permitted for:

  • A serious health condition that keeps you from doing your job
  • The care of a sick child, spouse or parent with a serious health condition
  • The care of a newborn child, newly adopted child or foster child

Like the FMLA, the California Family Rights Act (CFRA) allows employees to take up to 12 weeks of leave. However, unlike FMLA leave, a CFRA leave of up to 12 workweeks may be requested (at the end of a PDL leave) if the child has been born by this date. There is no requirement that the employee or child have a serious health condition.



After having successfully handled my case, I’ve referred several friends and colleagues to Mr. Garay. He has come through and gotten their cases settled favorably every time. My reputation, both personal and professional, is very important to me. I won’t make a referral to people I know and work with unless that company has my complete confidence and trust. Mr. Garay and his associates continuously meet my high standards and expectations in getting the job done, that’s why I will continue to recommend him to my colleagues and associates.
